Enable the “Hey, Siri” Command on Mac

Siri is a faster and more efficient way to get things done. It’s available on your Mac, Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV — optimized for each Apple device and ready to help the users throughout a whole day.

Apple has developed Siri like a human language personal assistant. This means you are supposed to talk to her just like she is a human being, and if she is able to do what you are asking, it works.

Siri is always learning. So the more you will use it, the more helpful it is likely to be. You can experiment by asking her almost anything. You might be amazed by seeing what she can understand or even some of the funny questions she can be answering. So if you want to know how you can enable the “Hey, Siri” command on your Mac iOS 10, follow the three simple ways given below:

Note: If you have declined Sierra’s initial Siri offer to enable Siri when you first installed your Mac iOS 10, then go to System Preferences > Siri and you will have to ensure that the box is checked for Enable Siri.

1- Enable the Hey, Siri command on Mac iOS 10

Tap on the Siri icon in the Dock. Doing so will spring forth the Siri window.

2- The Siri Icon Present In the Menu Bar

If you don’t find the Siri icon that should be located in the menu bar in the upper right corner of your Mac’s screen, follow the steps:

  • Go to the System Preferences.
  • And tap on the Siri option.
  • Then check the box in order to Show the Siri in the menu bar.

3- Use A Keyboard Shortcut

The default keyboard shortcut to activate Siri is as simple as that. All you’ve got to do is pressing and holding the Command-spacebar.

Also, you can set your own keyboard shortcuts by going to the System Preferences then Siri.
